Honestly, (and I have downloaded thousands of shows here) given the choice between a CM Transfer, a Seamons Matrix, and a Bertha Remaster - I am going CM, Bertha, Seamons... The original is always best I feel and then I can mess with the EQ myself. The Bertha Masters have the best bass Period!, often too much bass, and the matrix is filled with idiots shouting "Jerry!" or "China Cat," or whatever and can't compare to a true board. The "Being there" is over-rated and I expect top notch sound over performance every day of the week... Oh, the MOTB folks do rock!!!

I HATE it when someone yells China Cat. Then there's the kid who always yells for Passenger. Oh, I'm not very keen on the If I Had the World to Give shouts either.

You're still right up there Hunter so don't stop combining and mixing and making something from nothing because I have a bunch of your mixes in my itunes folder and never forget not everyone likes Coke with their Rum or Cheez with their Wiz or even Dog with their Taco...

I would say I go for the CM first to get the clarity when listening by myself. If I am putting it on for a group atmosphere I usually go with the Matrix. I shy away from the Bertha, I just think it sounds too altered.

Mr. Seamons does an excellent job on his Matrixes but for me I am a pure board guy from Mr. Miller but if Mr. Miller does not have a copy up ,I will then go with Mr. Seamons Matrix. I guess for me it is the non-audience sound. I much rather listen without that but I do see how many people like the "at the concert feel" to the transfer. Thank you to everyone who posts their boards here, it is a tetstament to them and this band that we can even have this discussion. How spoiled are we as Dead fans? I am listening to the Europe 72 tour now, with many other bands we can't get this access so thanks to all who put the time in and redo these recordings for all our pleasure!

"The 'Being there' is over-rated"....?

Not sure I agree with that. Although my collection is tilted toward soundboards, I do find many boards to be flat and lifeless enough that they really benefit from the injection of an audience source. Just my 2 cents.

Sorry for the two posts but I am very interested in Mr. Seamons paper though. Having some minor surgery later this week so I will get a chance to read it then. Thanks for posting it!
